The center of the university is located on the eastern university campus; the important administrative buildings, cafeteria, library and many lecture and lounge rooms are located here. Thanks to the new lecture hall building on Falterstrasse, the area now appears very urban. The compensation provided by the approximately 3 hectare Rudolf Goethe Park, which extends between the upper center and the railway line, is all the more important. It is home to a variety of rare trees and bushes and was created as a landscape park.
In the center of the campus and in the park itself there are some representative perennial and woody plantings.
